How does Genesis 2-7 refute the opinion that the Bible says abortion is wrong?

There are ways of interpreting, though, which make it interesting whether or not you'd even say a fetus is considered a life by the Bible.

And the LORD G-d formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

ETA: Personally, I don't look at abortion as a Biblical issue, but many others seem to. Pro-lifers, anyway.
The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.
